Documentary short film produced by the U.S. Army, intended to enlighten the American public on the final thrust of the Allied war effort in Europe and on the plans for the return home of American forces.
In this installment of the "Why We Fight" propaganda series, we learn about the events on the Russian front of World War II. We learn about Russia's heroic resistance to invasion in the past and how those qualities were called upon in the current war. We also learn about Russian tenacity and their determination to win against the seemingly invincible forces of Nazi Germany in the bloodiest fighting of the war. Written by

The IMDb lists this as a single movie but I'm breaking it into two since it was originally released as two parts. Frank Capra once again shows us the history of Russia in various wars plus how they fought the Nazis during WW2. This here was probably the least interesting of all the Capra docs from this period. Part one focuses on the early years of Russia and I found the storytelling quite dull and tiresome. Part two picks up with WW2 but again, I found it rather tiresome even with the actual war footage.
